The good country which he traversed includes Zambia, Congo, and Botswana. Through a dazzling and almost unique series of stories, Manning presents his experiences while hunting alone, and later with paying (and some nonpaying) clients. [This book] is written about that splendid period before the poaching onslaught which almost closed Zambia and continues to the granting of her independence. It then goes on to recount Manning's experiences in Botswana, Congo and briefly in South Africa.
